I have a cornbread recipe that my kids really like. I know that the cornmeal may not be the best, but I am wondering how to make this recipe plan friendly. The current recipe is 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup yellow cornmeal, 2/3 cup white sugar, 1 tsp salt, 3 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 egg, 1 cup milk, and 1/3 cup vegetable oil. Do you think it would work if I used unsweetened almond milk, coconut oil, golden flax or almond flour and Nunaturals? Thanks!
I'm not sure how plan-friendly cornmeal is. It has 83 net carbs per cup. That plus the additional flour, say it's spelt at 72 net carbs per cup, puts the recipe at 155 carbs. Divided into say 9 servings is about 17-18 carbs per serving.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE cornbread, but have put it into a 'cheat' category in my head, as I usually bake it when we're having chili, in which case the net carbs of the cornbread combined with the carbs of E style chili would probably be too high for the 45 g meal allowance.
If you were set on trying to make it E friendly, I know cornbread works very well with almond milk, I've made mine that way for years. You'd need to swap out the oil with a fat replacement, with say applesauce (which will up the carbs a little bit) or greek yogurt; the egg with egg whites; and you would not use the almond flour, as it is an S, unless you were going for more of a Crossover type recipe. (In which case I suppose you could leave in the egg and use coconut oil.) Using nunaturals to sweeten it should work fine.
Also remember, if you were using it in E style, you would only use 1 tsp of butter on it, unless you are having the added fat somewhere else in your dinner. (And if you use honey on it like I loved to do, it would push the carbs higher. )
I tried making my own E style muffin-in-a-mug with a oats, quinoa flakes, 1 T of cornmeal for that taste/texture, egg whites, stevia, and yogurt. Didn't love how it turned out. If I perfect it I'll post
For me, I think it is easier to just make the regular recipe for my Hubby and babes, and either have a tiny tiny sliver, or just forego it, knowing I'm getting skinnier
But if you really really want to experiment with it, go for it! And let us know if you come up with anything fabulous

I want to give these a try sometime to see how "cornbread" they are like. Might do stevia for honey, but leave in the applesauce since it is such a little amount spread for 6 muffins and provides some moisture I might add a bit of water for the moisture lost from the honey.

gardenchick: Just got my book and have been gobbling it up. Trying to get started slowly, since I still need to buy some foods. I made a delicious dinner tonight... I was hoping it was an E meal...but I can't be sure. :/

mandy140: Where do I find the recommended items and where to buy them? I thought they would be on this web site. Like THM Sweet Blend, Whey powder, Gluccomannan, Konjac noodles, Chana Dahl beans. I can't seem to find my way around.

stacylynn: mandy140: I bought the konjac noodles and gluc powder at: www.konjacfoods.com, but found the chana dahl on Amazon! Check out the whey powder on www.swansonvitamins.com. Hx food stores and Grocery Outlet may be local options for you as well.

mandy140: I have a question about Whey Protein Powder. I read Serene's article on Whey, friend or foe? I checked Swanson's web site and there are so many Whey Powders there I can't find the one Serene recommended; the CFM. How do I know which it is? Thanks.

farmerblacks: I did THM for a few months and loved it. I got away from it when I had to have 2 surgeries in 6 weeks. I would like to get back to it, but now my husband has to be on a low sodium diet. Are there any THM families that also do low sodium?

vintagejva: If brown rice is acceptable on THM, can I then eat brown rice pasta?

robbiesnest56: Do you make the ice cubes out of whole fat and low fat coconut milk so you have both options? Are they both S?[br]

ggwells: Ok new to the site. Want to keep it simple. I understand not to mix high fat with carbs. I love having eggs for breakfast sometimes. So can I have egg burrito with bacon. Then have to S meals for lunch and dinner?
Aug 25, 2014 5:18:51 GMT -5
steffanie3: All coconut things are best thought of as S, but you could use a small amount for FP robbiesnest56
Aug 27, 2014 0:55:38 GMT -5
steffanie3: ggwells, if you purchase some low-carb tortillas you could have a S meal and enjoy burrito. For how it effects lunch and dinner on THM you simply need to wait three hours before you next meal and switching fuels
